New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 26, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas New Braunfels HeraldZeitung Tuesday, July 26, 1983Wrecker statute passes first reading ByDYANNE FRY Staff writer A second wrecker-control ordinance passed first reading in City Council Monday, but may undergo an overhaul before it's read the second time. “It’s a pretty good ordinance, with the exception of four or five things that we need to have changed,” said Jerry Vineyard in a telephone interview Tuesday morning. Vineyard was recently named vice president of the local wrecker drivers’ association. Chief among the drivers' concerns is the proposed permit fee of $360 a year per truck. Vineyard says that's unrealistic for a town this size. He thinks $150 would be more reasonable, perhaps with a $50 annual renewal fee. “The other (suggestions) are just minor things having to do with equipment,” he added. City Manager E.N. Delashmutt called Council’s attention to the drivers' objections, but hadn't had time to do any research on them. “Until five after five last night, I thought the wrecker ordinance was just what (the operators) wanted," he said Tuesday. The ordinance was adapted from a City of Beaumont law. brought to council’s attention by Vineyard two weeks ago. Just after quitting time Monday, Councilmember Donnie Seay brought the city manager a handwritten note outlining the association's objections to the ordinance. Seay knew he wasn't going to be able to attend the council meeting. Delashmutt said. Council passed the first reading on a unanimous vote, but only after Delashmutt promised to have Police Chief Burney Boeck meet with the wrecker drivers before the second reading rolls around. Vineyard hopes the problems can be ironed out in that meeting. The last wrecker-regulating ordinance considered by the council died on second reading. All that one did was to set standards for wrecker conduct in the city, prohibiting any unit from showing up at the scene of an accident unless it had been called by a law enforcement agency. Vineyard and the other drivers felt that this ordinance didn’t really address the problems that existed. Apparently, Delashmutt didn’t think so either, because he followed up with a proposal that the city contract with one wrecker company to handle all its calls. The city’s wrecker operators came en masse to the July ll meeting to quash this idea. The hastily-formed association (comprising nine of the 13 companies now on the city’s rotation list) offered an alternative: a permit system, such as the one used in Beaumont. The new ordinance requires any wrecker operating within the city limits to have a permit, and to meet the minimum standards on equipment and insurance which are set forth in the ordinance. A company wouldn’t have to be on the rotation list for city business if it didn’t want to, but it couldn’t be on the list without the permit. And, in the event of any misconduct (ambulance-chasing, answering a call in an intoxicated state) the city could revoke the permit, Vineyard said.

Such promotions imply sanction by the chamber or by the Wurstfest Association, chamber president Donnie Seay said. Only one chamber-sponsored map exists, he said. Seay said Tuesday that the chamber had issued letters to all chamber members earlier this year about such promotions. “One lady lost $900 on an ad,” Seay said. The woman was not a chamber member, he added. Promoters often leave the impression that their maps are sanctioned by the chamber or by Wurstfest, when they are not, Tom Purdum, chamber executive vice president, said. “If people are going to purchase ads (in the maps or guides) they ought to call the chamber so they don’t get taken,’’ he said. Seay said the opportunity for such promotions exists because the word “Wurstfest" is not an official trademark. It is understandable that merchants would want to be associated with Wurstfest, he said. If a business is approached by a promotion map or guide, “the best thing to do is to pick up the phone and call the Chamber of Commerce,” Seay said. New Braunfels on film New Braunfels will find itself on camera if the Chamber of Commerce has its way. Stanley Woodward, vice chairman of the chamber’s Convention and Tourism Committee, reported Tuesday that the chamber has been asked by the San Antonio Tourist Bureau to paticipate in a film displaying San Antonio and other south central Texas cities. The film will cost $2,500 to $3,000 per minute. Woodward said. The film will be about IO to 12 minutes long. The other cities have been asked to help defray the cost, he said. The San Antonio program will account for half of the film time, he said. “We will ask for about two minutes, (of film time)” Woodward told chamber members, adding, “it will be money well spent.” Woodward also said the committee has budgeted $20,700 to promote the Fall Escape Trip for this year. The program plans to encourage visitors to bring business to local motels and hotels during a period when lodges would be empty, he said. Woodward said the program “was quite successful” last year. Postal panel formed The Chamber of Commerce has formed a committee to help the U.S. Postal Service find a suitable site for a new post office building. The committee consists of Dr Mitchell J. Sacco, chairman, Stanley Woodward and Vincent John All submissions must be made by Aug. 15. Sacco asked chamber members Tuesday to encourage persons who have property to submit it by the deadline. “It’s a fairly short-fuse time frame,” chamber president Donnie Seay said. The “preferred area’’ for a new post office is bounded on the north by the Comal River, on the east by Garden Street, on the south by Santa Clara Street and on the west by the MKT Railroad tracks, the postal service announced. The site size needed in 112,000 sqaure feet of land, or a lot w ith minimum dimensions of 265 feet by 350 feet. The proposed new building will have approximately 15,335 square feet of interior floor space.

Fair skies were noted before dawn as most of the state reported fair to mild temperatures. Some high clouds covered the High Plains and the Trans Pecos. A few showers and thunderstorms developed in far West Texas near Kl Paso Temperatures at 4 a in. ranged from 69 at Amarillo to 82 at Wichita Falls. Winds were mostly from the south at 5 to IO mph. .The forecast called for clear to partly cloudy skies to continue through Wednesday. Afternoon highs were expected to range from 95 to 105 over most of the state. Four suspects still at large after drug raid There may not be much hope of catching the four persons who remain free, in what District Attorney Bill Schroeder called the “biggest drug raid in Comal County history" last Friday. New Braunfels Police Ut. Felix Roque said Tuesday there were still four outstanding arrest warrants out of a total 35 indictments, returned by a special Grand Jury Friday. The indictments involved over 40 counts of delivery and selling of controlled substances, such as marijuana, methamphetamines and LSD. “There probably isn’t much hope we’ll catch these last four,” Roque said “One’s in Illinois, one s in California, one’s in another city, and the fourth one we’ve only got a first name.” The indictments followed a 44-month investigation by undercover Department of Public Safety officers, with local county and city officers providing backup and assistance when needed. DPS Narcotics Sgt Adolph Thomas called the raid “a typical small town operation,’’ and said the shortterm impact on the city’s drug traffic would be “big.” The long-term impact, he said, will “frankly depend on prosecution and confinement." ‘I’m earning Insured Tax-Free Interest of 9.37 % bv investing in Insured Municipal Im ome Trust.” **1.
